Maarib House is a 4 bedroom 4 ½ bath villa located in the verdant hillside Shannon estate on the North of Tortola with spectacular views of Jost van Dyke. The property is about 1000 ft above sea level and benefits from the higher elevation with year round reduced temperatures. The central location means the beaches of the north shore and shopping in Road Town are all within easy driving distance.
The main pavilion includes a split-level great-room with gourmet kitchen, living and dining areas all opening up to the spacious swimming pool terrace, ideal for entertaining and outdoor living. The master bedroom suite, with bath and walk-in closet, is also located on the main floor together with a powder room. The lower level comprises two spacious bedrooms both with bathrooms en suite, with direct access to the beautiful and mature landscaped gardens surrounding the villa. A one bedroom guest cottage is located on the other side of the swimming pool deck. Very well appointed, the residence is finished to a high standard throughout.
